E-Tax Applied for House Leasing

Posted: Friday, June 22, 2018

Taxpayers can declare and pay taxes on house leasing electronically at any time in a day. Carrying out the Governmental Resolution 36a/NQ-CP dated October 14, 2015 on e-government, the tax sector has performed many administrative reform measures and provided favourable conditions for taxpayers. Among them is electronic tax declaration service for house leasing and property transferring.

The General Department of Taxation has actively implemented electronic tax declaration services for rental of property and transfer of real estate for non-corporate taxpayers since the start of 2018. The tax sector has piloted it in seven provincial tax departments (Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Quang Tri, Thua Thien Hue, Da Nang, Phu Tho and Bac Ninh.)

According to statistics, more than 26,600 declaration records had been sent to tax authorities from January 1 to April 2018. Specifically, the Hanoi Tax Department handled more than 7,500 records; and the HCM City Tax Department received more than 19,000 records). In addition, up to 4,571 companies registered accounts with tax offices. Notably, the Hanoi Tax Department served 1,700 accounts, the HCM City Tax Department served 2,800 accounts, and the rest served 14 accounts.

With respect to electronic tax payment, the tax sector successfully connected with three commercial banks (Vietcombank, VietinBank and Agribank) and is providing electronic payment services for the people. Since November 2016, the sector has piloted electronic value added tax and personal income tax payment for assets-leasing individuals in two major cities of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

Reportedly, the implementation of electronic value added tax and personal income tax declaration for house leasing is very convenient. Previously, lessors had to declare and pay VAT and PIT quarterly at tax offices or send tax records by post.

Electronic means enable them to declare and pay taxes anytime, anyplace they want from computer, tablet or smartphone.
